simpy.resources — SimPy’s built-in resource types¶
SimPy defines three kinds of resources with one or more concrete resource types each:
- resource: Resources that can be used by a limited number of processes at a time (e.g., a gas station with a limited number of fuel pumps).
- container: Resources that model the production and consumption of a homogeneous, undifferentiated bulk. It may either be continuous (like water) or discrete (like apples).
- store: Resources that allow the production and consumption of discrete Python objects.
The base module defines the base classes that are used by all resource types.
